So I finally decided to get started on this little nugget. Bought it home 9 months ago, let it sit on my lawn, mice moved into the engine bay, made a nice home for themselves. As well as several spiders...

Fit a new turbo and an intercooler... How hard can it be? Right...

TD04 is a bit of a bastard to fit, gonna have to drop the center subframe to clear it in... Probably advisable for me to actually hook up the firewall side engine mount before I do that.

Oh and Vacuum lines? WHY SO MANY?! 1983 EFI at its best(worst?)

Battery tray is fubar, and made out of fibreglass? I'm guessing reproduction.

Hello Harreh! Your T2 looks a lot like my first T2...a real barn-find condition car, straw & a dead mouse as well wrapped around the Air-Con fan :p She did roar into life tho. Your brake booster/MC looks abit rough...I'd be checking the radiator thermostat unit if I were you, the one on my first Turbo 2 was totally rusted & basically did nothing, it finally failed which resulted in the engine blowing. it's in a metal housing on the engine-end of the top radiator pipe.

Cheers dude.

I plan to give it a fairly large overhaul with the cooling system.

Got a lead on a brake booster atm, just need to sort out the appropriate civic booster that suits. Structually the car is fine, so if I can work out what to do in the turbo department, either fitting the TD04 or getting the factory unit rebuilt/highflowed, I'll be keen to get started on paint

Swapping turbo's in these cars with the engine in is the worst thing you'll ever have to do. I sincerely wish you luck hahaha! There really is no room for any tools or your hands, we had to buy smaller sized spanners just for the job
